    Training and a willingness to continue to learn about firearms is a must after a CC&W Class,Ya Gotta put in the work ,I decided that long before I chose to exercise my Constitutional right to arm myself and that it would cost time and money,The most disturbing experience about my 12 hours of certification was as I looked around in the class that there were a number of people who would take The CC&W class and that would be the extent of The learning about Firearms and all it encompasses,that is frightening. I know this is Judgement on my part but I profile people, Its my day job during the summer months , and thats 1,000's of people and If I might be so prideful I've become very good at it,and I came to the conclusion that some of those people that took the CC&W Class the day I did,have no Business around any type Firearm...

    You must be reading something quite old because that hasn't been the law for several years, at least for those that have a CHL.

    Of course it is old....That post was made nearly 9 years ago on May 11, 2004!!
    Most of this thread was posted in 2004 and is far outdated. It appears that KevinAustin joined THR yesterday and resurrected the 9-year-old thread to advertize his business.

    Ohioans should look at current carry laws. They have changed several times over the past 9 years and are vastly improved. More good changes go into effect in March also.

    That said, New Albany is still a good place to take a CCW course. But there are lots of other good places in Central Ohio also. Many are based upon the NRA Basic Pistol course.

    There is much to be learned in basic classes, especially when new students are attending. You can take it that way or you can look for little details that will improve your tactics, shooting, awareness or other skills. You can watch the instructor's technique and learn how to teach or improve your teaching method. The best examples are when the student doesn't get it and the teacher has to explain it differently.

    Or, you can sit there bored.

    If you are experienced with firearms you will be totally bored. I would assume that if you are totally new to guns and have never been to the range like most of the people who were in my class at Blackwing two years ago you will find it worth while. I would say that of the 25 people in the class I attended over half had no idea how to breakdown or clean the handgun they brought nor had they had any real time at a range. For them the class was helpful.
